Oven Temperature Monitoring Using Intelligent Data Loggers

CAS DataLoggers recently offered the temperature datalogging solution for a factory with multiple lines of batch heat treatment ovens. The factory had been taking manual temperature measurements from controller displays, but to save time and labor, the customer wanted to use an automated datalogging solution to record and transmit all the data. CAS DataLoggers provided dataTaker dataloggers with all the needed inputs along with remote data accessibility. Read more on our Quality Assurance applications notes page.

Monitoring and Recording Harmful Gas Detection in a Chemical Plant

CAS DataLoggers recently supplied a chemical company with a combination gas detection and temperature recording system. For safety reasons, the plant needed a data logger to monitor hydrochloric acid gas (HCL) and chlorine (CH2) levels as well as temperature throughout the plant in 20 separate locations. A highly-accurate standalone solution was necessary to connect to the various sensor types, store it in a large memory, and send the data to an office PC.

dataTaker-DT80-2 Data Logger

A solar hot water system installer had a need for automated monitoring to track the temperature, water flow rate, and several other parameters at various points in the tanning beds system. The goal was to setup control for the system’s various circulating pumps, to store the data for performance tracking, and to monitor energy production for billing. To save on cost, the company wanted a single solution with flexibility to connect with many different sensor types including thermistors, pyranometer voltage, 4-20mA current loops, and pulse signals from the flow meters and energy meter.

Tank Temperature Monitoring and Control

Flexible, Affordable Process Control with dataTaker
CHESTERLAND OH—June 4, 2012

Storage tankCAS DataLoggers recently supplied the industrial data logging technology for a large manufacturing plant monitoring the temperature of several water bath tanks used to maintain the temperature of a sample of material undergoing a long-term durability test. Plant management began searching for a single temperature recording system which could connect to RTDs and thermocouples for high accuracy recordings and also perform control functions whenever the tanks’ temperature suddenly went outside specification.

Environmental Monitoring of Algal Blooms in a River System

Stand-Alone Recording with Battery Backup CHESTERLAND OH—May 31, 2012 Algae bloomCAS DataLoggers recently provided the data logging solution for an environmental organization monitoring an outbreak of algal blooms in a major river. The slime-colored blooms had formed as a rapid increase in the population of aquatic photosynthetic microorganisms (such as phytoplankton or cyanobacteria) to the extent that the water became noticeably discolored. First a research team was formed to ascertain all the factors contributing to the outbreak. Researchers hoped that there was a way of allowing the river’s natural forces to inhibit its algae growth, given that the river was also dammed at frequent intervals by a system of locks and weirs. To this end, they required detailed knowledge of weather conditions on the river’s surface and a highly-accurate temperature stratification profile within the river itself.

Temperature and Humidity Monitoring During Truck Shipments

Food transportation temperature and humidity loggingCAS DataLoggers recently supplied the datalogging solution for a chocolate manufacturer experiencing problems when complaints came in from customers occasionally receiving spoiled chocolate products. There were three possible phases where this risk could occur– during manufacturing, transportation, or after the retailer received the chocolate. Since both temperature and humidity were critical to chocolate quality, it was necessary to closely monitor both parameters during the entire process. Using their own equipment, the company found that their manufacturing process wasn’t the cause, so their next step was to monitor the product during transportation.
